Yesterday we looked at a photo of a very old bridge, in today's photo we see a piece of Venice's newest bridge.
What a contrast.
The fourth bridge to cross the Grand Canal has in interesting sort of "spine", made of these metal frames, which remind me of whale vertebrae I once saw on a beach in Alaska.
Walking by the train station in Venice, Tamás took this photo and had this to say about it:
"I think this is a sample piece of steel from the Calatrava Bridge's main girder. Whether or not they intended it to stand as a statue, I think it's still located besides the Santa Lucia railway station in late 2010, although at a slightly different spot.
Thanks for the photo Tamás.
Looking at the bridge, I can see how this "vertebrae" piece might fit into the structure.
Santiago Calatrava has built more than just a bridge from Piazzale Roma to Santa Lucia, his projects can be admired in many places. on June 21st, 2010, I put up a post on a bridge of his in Redding, California.
